Using Cyberark for storing Database password

We are looking to integrate Cyberark for managing the clear text Database password which is stored within the dbconfig.xml file.


As this has opened a risk along with having an ITEC waiver in place we are looking to edit the dbconfig.xml file to user a JNDI datasource in replace of the clear text password, and then intergrate this into Cyberark so as the password is hidden behind our break/glass process.


Are you aware of any other customers doing this or similar to this?


I understand if the above is found to be an issue that would cause issues with support, however we've checked the technicalities of this and would easily be able to revert the change should this be found to be the cause of any future issues.


Kind Regards
